It’s summer time, Christmas is around the corner, and RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 is just one itty bitty week away to make 2018 worth all the pain.
In the all-new trailer, the queens are serving lewk after lewk in a spectacularly ~frosty~ season. But first, our host RuPaul kicked things off with a twist.
“All Star rules have been temporarily suspended,” Mama Ru says.
Quite the dramatic move, Ru hinted at this shock twist earlier this year in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: “It will shock fans, although I don’t think they’ll be as disappointed. We always try to do something fresh and interesting, and sometimes it turns out in a way that you don’t really expect.”
Bang on the money.
Competing for that elusive spot in the hall of fame, our ten queens for this season are Monét X Change (Season 10), Trinity Taylor (Season 9), Farrah Moan (Season 9), Valentina (Season 9), Monique Heart (Season 10), Jasmine Masters (Season 7), Naomi Smalls (Season 8), Gia Gunn (Season 6), Manila Luzon (Season 3, All Stars 1), and last but certainly not least we have Latrice Royale (Season 4, All Stars 1),
Not to mention Grey’s Anatomy goddess Ellen Pompeo is a guest judge alongside Saturday Night Live‘s Cecily Strong, Zoë Kravitz, Rita Ora, Gus Kenworthy, and Jennifer Lewis.
Meet your queens below.
“YOU HAVE SO MUCH PLASTIC IN YOU, YOU’LL PROBABLY BE BURIED IN A RECYCLING BIN.”
Special mention to Pompeo’s excellent judging: “Diagnosis: sickening. You were giving face and drama and I was here for it.”
In Australia, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 will premiere exclusively on Stan, December 15!
Just one more week, folks.
